Aaron Gwin's Modified Specialized Demo
So the rumors say, but only on the new DH shock.

Aaron Gwin's Modified Specialized Demo
Referring to this as being ''sponsored'' is being critical of it in my mind, but apologies if that's not what you meant. There isn't much to talk about tech-wise lately (Taipei was a massive bore, wasn't it?) and the race season is kicking off soon, so this makes this relevant in my mind. Also, it's new and a prototype, which means I want to show it and explain the whys and hows.

Word is that the new shock is a ''twin-tube'' design, although FOX and others who use a recirculating layout don't call it that.

Race season is starting up, so those who like this kind of stuff (obviously not you) are interested in what the pros are using, especially if it's not a production item. Sorry if you didn't find this interesting, but maybe you'll like this article: http://noisey.vice.com/en_uk/blog/what-kind-of-grammys-complainer-are-you

It's the near-production version of the FOX RAD DH shock that we've shown many, many times now: http://www.pinkbike.com/news/2015-specialized-s-works-demo-mont-saint-anne-world-cup-2014.html

I think the story here is that the WC racers wanted a more progressive bike, so Specialized made that happen. I've ridden the new Demo and it didn't feel too linear to me in the slightest - that never entered my mind. Then again, we're all quite a bit slower than the WC guys, aren't we? I get the impression that we'd have a hard time using full travel on a Demo with this prototype link.

It's not the case. The new link works with the Vivid on Troy's bike as well, and it'd likely work with any shock. This is also true of the production Demo.
